Carluccio’s – Newcastle – England – United Kingdom

It was dinnertime and we were going to Carluccio’s, a restaurant in the Metrocentre.

It was Italian and I had not been before. It looked like this

For starters, me and my sister had breadsticks (it came free with the kid’s meal) the waiter was Italian he was from Venice which is here.


He was very friendly too. The breadsticks were nice and had cheese or something n them which was tasty. Once we had finished I ordered lasagna, my sister ordered chicken Milanese with my dad and my mum ordered fish. When they arrived, my dad had a long conversation with the waiter who seemed like he could go on forever. Once they had finished we started to eat, my lasagna was delicious one of the best I’ve ever tasted.


I wolfed it down and was finished before everyone else. Soon everyone was finished and the plates were collected. After 10 minutes or so we ordered desserts I had some ice cream

Which was ok, it could have been better. When everyone was finished, the restaurant was empty so me and my mum went and bought a recipe book that was signed by the author, the owner of Carluccio’ mum then had a 20 MINUTE! Conversation with the manager whilst my dad was still talking to the waiter.


Finally, we were ready to go. It was a funky restaurant and I enjoyed going here.

The Marriot – Newcastle – England – United Kingdom

At lunchtime me, my sister, my mum and my dad arrived at the Marriot, Newcastle.

We had driven from Scotland and were glad to finally take a rest.


It was quite big and had a fancy looking entrance and I could see a sign for the bar and restaurant within it. Once we had checked in we got the lift to the fifth floor, walked a little then went into our room the door locking automatically behind us. Our room looked a little like this.

Family Room

I had soon finished unpacking even though we were only staying the weekend. I then made my mum and I a cup of tea which was delicious since I had not had one for weeks.

I then checked out the bathroom it was really cool with heated towel racks, a nice temperature shower and even some freebees. I mean, what more could you want!

Guest Bathroom

We the left and went to the MetroCentre which, if you didn’t know is Europe’s largest shopping mall. It was very big and confusing but had a lot of cool shops. when my dad, sister and I returned from the mall (my mum was still shopping) We decided to try out the pool it looked like this except with lots of people.*:423px

We stayed for 45 minutes-ish as it wasn’t very big. When we arrived back at our room we got dressed into formal/casual clothes to get ready for dinner as it was at a nice restaurant.

We were going to Carluccios(for more info see my review) after a lovely meal we walked back to the hotel, it was very close. The bed was soft but not too soft so I easily fell asleep.


In the morning, I went down for breakfast which was well, ANYTHING! I felt full afterwards but we were heading somewhere we were heading to Beamish. By this point we had already loaded our bags into the car and was sad to leave the hotel but oh well a hotels a hotel.

My sister (MrsJuniortravelfreak)has written a review on this.


I liked this hotel but it could do with a better pool .


Foundation Filon – La Hulpe – Brussels – Belgium

Today me mum and my sister walked to an art gallery, on the way we walked through a park which was very beautiful. My sister ran up the hill and I chased after her. We came up to a small farmhouse kinda place.

We went into a small room with a desk. Behind the desk there was a lady who said “bonjour”. We then bought tickets which were reasonably priced and she gave us directions around. She explained we walk through this gallery the cross over and use this keycard (which she gave us) to open it.

She then said go upstairs first and work your way down. The lady then said watch the video and pointed at a wall shaped like a book, it had a screen on it. We then looked at it and sure enough there was a bright light and the screen started displaying a video. It showed a hand drawing seagulls on a sheet of paper.

The seagulls came alive and flew around the room (in the video). Meanwhile there was a male voice talking about an artist who name I couldn’t pronounce (it was French). The video ended and displayed the artists name while pronouncing it. I tried to say it but still couldn’t. the lady at the desk then said “enjoy” but there was no entrance in sight.

Then as if to answer my question the wall (shaped like a book) moved inwards and revealed a dimly lit room filled with a selection of different corridors all of which were filled with paintings.



We walked in, I studied the picture very carefully to make sure I got every detail. . I saw a picture which seemed cool it looked like this:

I didn’t understand it so I asked my mum and she said “The artist did his work from his head to his brush) then I thought “well or pencil or oil pastel.” Well you get the point he drew from his head to whatever tool he was using.


We then walked through and looked a various different paintings which had other features using the same technique.


We walked round an aisle which had painting too but these were different as they were painted on stone which I found interesting.  I guess he was expressing his thoughts through his paintings as I felt they were all a little senseless.


There was a room which looked like glass but it actually was actually filled with mirrors! Each of the walls, the roof and the floor was made of mirrors.  If I looked down all I could see was the reelection of mirrors and 100s and 1000s of other mirrors.


We found a staircase which has music coming from it – it sounded as though something exciting was about to happen!  We went into the large room at the top of the staircase and found only 2 paintings.  The paintings were of people who had special features like an upturned nose or really big ears etc.!


Upon leaving the gallery there was a fountain which was a statue of the artist which looked like this:



We scanned our key card which allowed us access to another building. We walked up a staircase which had lots of lights shining in different colors.


This room had pictures of early comics like the early Dennis the Menace and Smurfs.


Next up we saw a full wall of Smurf comics – made of canvas!


There was lots of other stuff to see and a gift shop as well.


I really enjoyed my visit as I learned how early comics were made and who made then. Some of the paintings I saw were really cool too.



Publico – Brussels – Belgium

On our second day of our holiday we went to a restaurant in Brussels called Publico which was in the middle of the city. It was a casual sort of restaurant. We ordered drinks at the bar because the place was very busy. We then eventually got a table and our drinks. Mum and dad had an aperol spritz which I had a tiny sip of and liked, but Ben didn’t. I had a coke and Ben had an orange juice. We ordered food as this was a tapas bar you order lots of different little things for everyone to share. Mum and Daddy Waddy Laddy ordered some tapas, I got a steak, my brother got spaghetti with meatballs in it.

My steak was delicious and the chips were tasty too. here is ME

Patak – Edinburgh – United Kingdom

Today my Mum, Dad, sister and I walked to an Indian restaurant called Patak. I opened the door and stepped inside, in front of me was a post saying ‘please wait to be seated’ so I listened and waited.

In a short time, a man walked up to us and I said “table for 4 please” so he asked us to sit at a table. I then looked at the menu thoroughly and chose a dish named ‘tikka masal’.

I then ordered my drink I ordered a mango juice which came 5 minutes later. I enjoyed my drink.

I then ordered my meal which arrived within an appropriate time. I tasted my chicken and tried it with some nan it was really nice. When I had finished my Dad asked for the bill.

When a man handed him a plate with the receipt on it I noticed some After Eights underneath it. I then ate one which tasted good. We then left and walked home I enjoyed that day and hope that if you go you enjoy yourself too.

Margaritas, Dempsey Hill – Singapore

Today we went to a restaurant with my mum, dad and sister, it was called Margaritas. You might think that it was a pizza place but it was not, it was Mexican. We went in and the waiter gave us a table it was very busy. Then we ordered I ordered some chicken and beef wraps, my dad said it would be big and that I should share it with my sister so I did as he said and asked the waiter to give us an extra plate. My mum had something spicy because she loves spicy and my dad had some chicken wraps. We then talked for a little while and before long our nachos came. We ate some nachos but we were all very thirsty. Finally after a long wait our drinks came. My sister and I had a lime juice my mum had a weird drink and my dad had some beer. Then after a little wait we got our meals my wraps were amazing. After eating we went to the toilet paid the bill and drove of.

I think that you should go here.



Wok ‘n’ Spice, Glenrothes – United Kingdom

Last week on Sunday I went to Wok n Spice in Glenrothes.  I tasted lots of food.  I tasted Duck, Chicken Curry and Lemon Chicken. I also had some foods that I had already tasted.

My favourite food was the Banana Fritter for dessert.  I had two plates of food for the main course.

When we were leaving, there was a little market and there was lots of little toys. I got a little toy dragon – here is a photo of my dragon

Albertos, Dunfermline – United Kingdom

We went out for lunch today because I wanted to take my great-gran out for lunch. I went to Alberto’s in Dunfermline with my great-gran, my TravelFreak Mum & Dad and my JuniorTravelFreak sister.

When we first arrived I wondered where we were going to sit as there were lots and lots of tables. When we first went in a man asked how many of us there were and offered us a choice of two places to sit.

I liked being in the restaurant; it looked like a nice place to have a meal. The restaurant looked a little fancy as there were some candles that get lit up at night but because we were there at lunchtime, the candles were not lit.
